As a family of 5 - 2 adults and three children aged 11, 9 and 5 we have just returned from a 13 day stay at the Plaza Suites. Our stay was fantastic. We loved the three bedroom loft suites and found everything to be near perfect. The only thing I will say is that they need to have access to change money for those that wish to do so... I have already expressed my opinion on this with management. We loved everything about the suites and highly recommend it. I don't believe the suite that we stayed in was outdated. We never had issues with leaking toilets... Everything worked perfectly. We had two courtesy calls during our stay to ask if everything was okay. WE had breakfast included and found it had variety. I guess we were easily pleased! We love the security guard at the back gate and found that by 6pm when the guard left we were catching transport at the front of the hotel ready for dinner - so the back gate closing at 6pm was never an issue for us... Transport was always available when needed. WE often used the courtesy bus and recommend people use it to get to the beach. The walk to Hardy's Supermarket is quick and easy. You can catch the shuttle bus which runs every hour if you don't want to walk back with heavy bags. The trip into Kuta was quick. We loved the quietness of Sanur as opposed to Kuta. We will definitely stay again and look forward to it!

Thank you for your positive review on the TripAdvisor website.. Your testimonial says it all.. We are very pleased that you enjoyed the serves and facilities we have to offer. Thank you also for the comments with regards to changing money. With the back gate opening the ATM’s and official money changers are just a 7-minute walk down the road. We do appreciate your comments and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future.

We stayed one week in a suite and the spacious rooms for 2 adults & 2 kids 8 and 12 years old. There were 2 bed rooms, 2 bath rooms, 1 well-equiped clean kitchen, dining and living. In the hotel the staff was kind, polite, helpfull and the suite was clean at arrival. It was nice to have our own free of charge 20L container for cooled/hot drinking water in the room. The kids liked the swimming pools and water slide, although the slide was slow and designed for younger kids. Breakfast was good.
The only negative comment we have is that the backgate closed too early. When you want to go out for dinner after 6pm you have to take a taxi to the restaurant, because it is not pleasant to walk along the busy main road. During the day, we used the backdoor which is just a few minutes walk to the shops (5min), restaurants (10min) and beach (15min). The shuttle frequency is low (once per hour) and there is no shuttle service in the evening.

Room tip: Spacious rooms to store all the equipment (for swimming, snorkling, diving, hiking etc) and ideal to stay with kids.

Thank you for your positive review for the Sanur Paradise Plaza Suites. We are very happy that you enjoyed your time with us. Yes it is a very short walk to the shops and surrounding restaurants, the back gate does close at 6pm for the safety and security of our guests. We do hope to welcome you back again on your next visit.

Recently done 7 nights with 2 adults and 3 kids here and really enjoyed our stay, its getting a little older but they are making improvements to the kids club etc. Overall its good value for money, family friendly but most importantly all the staff were excellent, especially Pin and Blink in the pool were awesome with the kids in the waterslide area and the boys behind the bar Yoga, Krisnah, Gnorah and Buddy made it easy for mum and dad to relax. Would definitely recommend for families, will be staying here again.

Room tip: Definitely opt for the 3 bedroom for that extra space.

7 of us (4 adults & 3 kids aged 3, 5 & 11) stayed in a 3 bedroom loft suite for 4 nights in mid-September 2013.

OVERALL
Overall, we found the hotel was good value for money, but it is showing its age and would benefit from some renovations. The favourite part for the kids was definitely the waterslide - they would have been happy playing on it the whole time. The "kids club" was not a place where you could leave the kids as it is NOT supervised and kids can come and go as they please. It was undergoing some maintenance when we were there and I hope it ends up being a more enjoyable place for kids to spend time SUPERVISED while the adults enjoy some adult time.

STAFF
On arrival, the desk staff were very friendly and helpful and provided a lovely refreshing cool tea (which the kids also enjoyed) and cool face towels. The staff throughout the hotel always looked us in the eyes and said hello which was lovely. But the service was a little slack at times.

ROOMS
Entry to our room was on the front side of the hotel which is the busy main road which I was a little worried about, but we heard little to no noise. The balcony overlooked the inside of the hotel - the pool area, which was a lovely view. On the balcony was a small clothes airer which we utilised our entire stay, but which was a little small for 7 of us.

The loft suite was extremely spacious, with 2 bedrooms downstairs and 2 adjoining bathrooms, then a 3rd bedroom & bathroom upstairs. I couldn't quite figure out though why there was no furnishings in the room at the top of the stairs. The top floor was quite warm; and there was a problem with the airconditioner up there, but this was rectified very quickly.

The shower prayed onto the toilets, one of the bath plugs & one of the sink plugs kept getting stuck down so we had to have a kitchen knife handy to pry them back up. But the bathrooms were maintained really well each day. In fact, the whole apartment was serviced to a high standard - they even lined up our numerous pairs of shoes. The kids loved the swans, monkeys & elephants made from the towels and left on the beds.

The lounge area was spacious, but the lounge was terribly uncomfortable and the pieces kept moving apart which made it awkward to sit on. Great options with tv viewing, but flat batteries in the controllers, which took over 24 hours to have returned to us.

The kitchen was quite tired, but was functional and with a great sized fridge to stock up on supplies at the local Hardy's supermarket (accessed via the back gate) to keep the costs down.

The room keys, while inconspicous being a credit card style, were easily lost (which did occur by one of our kids). I suggest management consider attaching a lanyard to them or something.

POOLS
As previously mentioned, the waterslide and kids pool area was very much enjoyed by the kids. The waterslide was quite slow, however, and could be a bit quicker (kept getting stuck in a few spots and had to move yourself down to get back into the stream of water). There was usually a staff member by the kids pool, but they weren't overly concerned with what was going on and I certainly would not have felt safe leaving the kids unsupervised as I doubt it would have been noticed if one of them got into trouble. While there was soccer and basketball nets, there were no balls to be seen.

The main pool was well laid out and very clean. The kids also enjoyed playing in here. However, there was very little supervision (if any). And at night (it got darker earlier than we expected) there was very little lighting in or around the pool, which we felt was unsafe trying to keep track of the kids. The basketball net was fun for the kids, but you had to have your own ball it seemed (we bought a cheap blow up one from Hardy's supermarket).

FOOD
We had breakfast included with our package. There was adequate choice of drinks and food which we found was all nice and appeared fresh. As with most buffets, the bain-maries didn't keep the food overly hot. The pool food was reasonably prices, tasted quite good, but were smallish portion sizes.

MASSAGE
My in-law's enjoyed a free 1/2 hour massage each that was included as part of our package. They said that it was excellent.

BACK GATE
The back gate was extremly handy to get to the main shopping and eating parts of Sanur. Hardy's supermarket was great and had food, drinks ($2.10 for a 700ml bottle of Bintang!), plus clothes, toys etc. However, after utilising the free shuttle to Sanur beach one day, then deciding to eat out for dinner (at an italian restaurant called Massimo which was lovely), we got caught out with the back gate being locked and we had an extremely long walk back to the hotel dodging holes in the footpaths etc. I strongly urge the hotel to consider keeping the back gate open for much longer.

OTHER
A few of the days that we were there, there were 2 girls who set up by the main pool and did hair braiding and I think also nails. My daughter got her hair braided for only 150,000RUP ($15AUD), which I found out after is quite cheap. And when one came out a few days later, they re-did it at no cost.
There were NO mosquitoes at all the entire 4 days we were there. It wasn't until we moved to our 2nd accommodation (a villa in Seminyak) where we were eaten alive, that we appreciated the fact that there were no mozzies at the Paradise Suites. We assumed this was as a result of the smoke that we saw early in the mornings.

Will we go back? We're not ones to stay at the same place twice anyway, but due to the kids club not being a fully operational or supervised place that we could leave the kids and go off for the day, I don't think we would go back on that basis.

This was our second time visiting this hotel and because we had loved it so much last time we booked again.
Once again we loved this place and would most definitely return.
Pros:
Super Family Friendly
Spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom Apartment
Easy transport - even using the hotel transport it was still only $9AUD to Waterbom and $3 to the main drag in Sanur
Free Wifi
Staff as always outstanding.
Love the new inclusion of Poolside bar and DJ for Happy Hour but as a result you lose some pool chairs ... this makes it a bit harder to grab one.
Free Shuttle bus to Hardys and Beach
Back gate which means a quick walk to Hardys.
Cons:
And yes this is really nitpicking because ultimately we love this place.
Would be great to have a shower not in the bath.. both bathrooms have a bath which is great but my tribe are all very tall and this makes it pretty hard to shower at times.
Toilet ran continuously and my husband had to rig it to stop all the time.
We were interrupted during our massage with people coming into book. Might be good if they locked the door or had a "Do not disturb - treatment in progress" sign.
As a said small things and more suggestions really.
